My husband and I are new to this whole process and very overwhelmed I have to say! We found a great (hopefully) agency and have signed up for our pre-adoption seminar July 12-13. Then we move on to our application/intake interview approximately two weeks later and hopefully our home study soon after. They feel that we will be ready to be shown to birthmothers starting around October.
I have to honestly say that I am not the most patient person in the world, so this is really going to be a challenge for me... I keep trying to remind myself that it can take months (or sometimes years) just to get pregnant, then 9 more months after that. I am not usually a believe of "fate", but that is really how I feel about this whole process- that "fate" will bring us the baby that we are supposed to have when we are supposed to meet them.
I am amazed, encouraged, and honored to be part of such an amazing community here on The Bump. The strength and support that you all seem to show each other is wonderful, and I hope to be part of that. If anyone has any words of advice to share, please do...
Thank you for taking the time to read my post :-)
